Four priority directions of the innovative and research & development activities indicated in the Strategy have been reflected in the works related to the preparation of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA) performed in 2017.
The favorable business environment and discipline in the pursuit of our strategy enabled us to bring about a substantial improvement in financial performance and operating ratios in 2017.
In 2017 the Tauron Group achieved a net profit of PLN 1.4bn, an increase of nearly 280% over the previous year.
Our objective is to offer products and services tailored to our customers’ expectations. Care for a group of nearly 5.5 million customers is also manifested through the optimization and improvement of business at each level of TAURON’s operations.
Technological progress is not perceived as a threat, but rather as an opportunity to become a leader of the innovative sector. We want to achieve this by developing new products and managing the infrastructure more efficiently.
